Can you build resilience to conflict?
Updated: Aug 6, 2021
Conflicts are inevitable in organizational life. Most people prefer to avoid it and hope it goes away. Having a conflict with someone in your organization or network costs a lot. Not only does it cost time, energy and stress, it impacts organizational productivity, creativity, the quality of decision-making, the level of motivation, the culture in your organization and last but not least often leads to absenteeism and law suits.
By normalizing conflicts and addressing these consequences we help you build resilience. The first step to build resilience is the acknowledgement of the fact that there is tension in certain dynamics between you and (an)other(s).
Secondly, you taking responsibility for your part of the situation, makes a huge difference. It shows your courage and willingness for the greater good. Taking initiative to do something about it, also feeds your growth mindset.
This mindset thrives on challenge and sees failure or problems not as evidence of unintelligence but as a heartening springboard for growth and for stretching your existing abilities.
